I have been working on a hand cream, and am getting a little closer to completion. Recently I made the formula with two different crosspolymers, which resulted in a very dramatic difference in the final products. We'll call them A and B.
A) This version goes on with 'Ahhhh' (when comparing the two). 30 minutes to 2 hours after application, if one touches the back of your hands.... You say...ah yes, I applied a hand cream...and I can still feel it working (I can still feel a result...other than my normal skin feel.)... something is here. But in no way....a negative feel....just...something is here (not greasy or oily), maybe an occlusive feel?
B ) Does not create quite the 'Ahhhh' feeling of A, upon application... But unless you are applying one on each hand.... You would never know. So I think both hand creams moisturize the same....but B leaves NO residual feeling in the 30min to 2 hour window. Your skin feels good....and natural. But when you touch the back of your hands....you do not say.... ah yes, I just applied a hand cream a while back. Just a feeling of natural healthy skin.
So I have multiple samples out in the mail....but I can't wait for feedback. So those that use hand creams.... Which sounds more appealing? I suspect that the users will choose option A.... but as someone that never used to use hand creams...I am not quite sure.
Will buyers feel short-changed if they can not feel something tangible in the 30min - 2 hour range? Or will moisturized hands with no additional feel be enough...and appreciated?
Your feedback would be much appreciated.
